Talib Kweli Surprise Releases New Album Fuck The Money

As Rolling Stone points out, backpack-rap veteran Talib Kweli has just surprise-released his new album Fuck The Money for free (I mean, I guess you can’t really make an album called Fuck The Money and then charge people for it). Miguel, Patrick Stump, Ab-Soul, and a few others feature, and title track “Fuck The Money” finds Kweli and South African rapper Cassper Nyovest cautioning of the evils of capitalism: “But when pursuit of the money is your only goal, then you lose control, then you lose your soul.” You can snag a free download of the whole thing by joining Kweliclub.com, and listen to “Fuck The Money” and check out the full tracklist below — one of the songs is called “Leslie Nope,” thus continuing Talib Kweli’s beautiful love story with Parks And Recreation.
